Another problem -- slopes: from "Adaptive Hybrid Clock Discipline
Algorithm for the Network Time Protocol" (allan.pdf file), page 8:
"The phase variations, which are dominated by white phase noise,
produce straight lines with slope -1 on the plots. The frequency
variations, which are dominated by random-walk frequency noise, produce
straight lines with slope +0.5 on the plots."
According to DATAPLOT reference cards:
ALLAN VARIANCE:
white noise: -0.5
random walk: +0.5
ALLAN STANDARD DEVIATION:
white noise: -1
random walk: +1
so what is actually on the plots on page 8? AV or ASD?
